Perfect Review by MikeA
Fit Price Function
I own 3 Granite Gear backpacks: Virga 2, Crown VC 60, and Leopard AC 58. I love them all! When I can go ultralight, I use the Virga 2. I use a 3/4 length Ridgerest pad as the pack frame. With 2 liters of water, a weekend of food, a single person Big Agnes tent, goosedown sleeping bag and everything for 3 days at carriend 2 nights I weigh in at a flat 21 pounds. Is very comfortable with the Ridgerest. I have not tried it without the sleeping pad acting as a frame sheet but it doesn't seem like it would be very comfortable. When I'm carrying about 26 pounds I switch to the Crown VC, and when I'm carrying more I go to the Leopard. All the packs are super comfortable and perform exceptionally.
You will get used to the pockets instead of a lid pretty quickly and I actually prefer it now as it really makes things simple. (Posted on 10/15/14)

What torso length should I get?
To find your torso length, measure the distance between your seventh cervical vertebra and the shelf of your hipbones. Do this by standing up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Tilt your head forward and place your hands on your hips, thumbs to the back. With a flexible tape, have someone measure from the most prominent vertebra at the base of your neck to an imaginary line drawn between your thumbs. This will be your torso length.
Virga Torso Lengths
Short Torso 15” to 18”
Regular Torso 18” to 21”
Long Torso 21” to 24”
NOTE: Virga torso lengths are not adjustable on the pack body.
What size hipbelt?
The Virga has a fixed belt that is adjustable from 26"-42"
What size shoulder strap?
Virga packs have fixed shoulder straps that cannot be swapped out for other sizes.
